a) The unforgivable, disgusting, heinous list of GOP Senatwhores who support the continued rape of American women by their corporate employers in Iraq:

I hesitate calling them bastards, but only because bastards did not have any choice in how their existence came to be, and I don't wish to insult them. And kudos to Senator Al Franken (D-MN) for gathering a large majority of sane senators on the issue.

b) Florida fretting over loss of Ineffably Stupid Criminal title to Louisiana:
Police said a naked man who appeared to be drunk or on drugs broke into a home in Slidell, cooked and ate a meal and took a shower before leaving, wrapped only in a sheet. Slidell Police Capt. Kevin Foltz said a video surveillance system at the home shows that the naked man first used a garden hose to shower outside the house. He later broke several windows, entered the house and ransacked it before cooking himself a meal, having several drinks and showering again. It happened early Monday while the home's owner was away.Read more: http://www.sfgate.com/...
Note to shower man. YOUR PICTURE is plastered on the front page of the local paper. Oh, wait. This is Louisiana. Do people READ papers there?
This is the state which loves a US senator who wears diapers and has prostitutes spank him during sex. One can only imagine what they do to pelicans in private.

c) Nazism, Necrophilia, Pedophilia, Bestiality
Leave it to Texass to elect a GOP congresscritter who thinks that legislating against hate crimes will cause all of the above.
Louis Gohmert (Tx - R) is the Church of Ineffable Stupidity's moist Sacred s'AINT of the day.
If you have a few minutes to waste, watch the vid. Too much sun? Too many cattle? Lead poisoning from all those bullets shot during losing Alamo skirmish? First we have Tom DeLay embarrassing America on national Tee Vee. And now this.

d) Wells Fargo
Calling this corporate gaggle of goose-stepping, gangrenous, gum-chewing, gypsies Sons of Bitches would be insulting to rabid pregnant dogs.
First, they grab $25 BILLION in taxpayer gifted bailout funds. Do they use this money to fix the very cystern that they broke? Hardly. Instead, they buy Wachovia Bank for $12.7 BILLION. And now, they are looking at the criminally inclined Swiss bank UBS (which got its own taxpayer bailout of $60 BILLION) as yet another target for takeover.
So, how are they financing all these bank purchases? Wells Fargo just announced that they are raising credit card rates across the board by 3%. That means some of their rates will exceed 20%.
In unrelated news, Funk and Wagnall's announced that one word searched a surprising number of times in recent days was "usury"
usury |ˈyoō zh (ə)rē|So nice of Wells Fargo to use our money so constructively, helping the little guy out. Tell me again why we bailed out these thieves? Why not simply buy out the mortgages and leave these banks to languish in latrines they dug and filled all on their own?
the illegal action or practice of lending money at unreasonably high rates of interest.

In unrelated news, Scientists in British Columbia have successfully decoded the genetic code of the second most common deadly breast cancer. This means that new and improved targeted cures and prevention are around the corner.
United Health's CEO has already excluded breast cancer as a pre-existing condition (after all, women had their breasts before the diagnosis) in order to support his HOURLY INCOME OF $58,000. Each hour. Every hour. Every day. Every week. Every month.
In more unrelated news, United Health was rated the worst health insurance company in America, with a higher rate of post-diagnoses policy cancellations and denials of claims, than even Blue Cross of California (the second worst company in America).
